Is it more expensive to call a mobile from my home (landline) phone?
The cost of calling mobile phones from your home phone will vary, but in general these calls are likely to be relatively more expensive than calls to other numbers.
Please contact your phone company for information and advice on the costs of making calls to mobile networks.
If you make a lot of calls to mobile networks from your residential phone, it might be worth comparing the cost of calling mobiles with alternative phone companies to see if savings could be made.
In April 2011 Ofcom capped the mobile termination rates charged by all four national mobile network operators – 3UK, O2, Everything Everywhere and Vodafone.
Mobile termination rates are the fees mobile operators charge other networks (both fixed and mobile) to terminate calls to their own customers.
Lower termination rates reduce the cost to landline companies of passing calls to mobiles.
Ofcom expects these savings to be passed on to consumers in the competitive UK landline market. Some operators have already promised to lower their charges.
